What can affect the accuracy of baby’s status?

If your baby's status doesn't seem right, there are a few things that might be affecting it:

  • External movements, like when they're in in a pushchair, car or plane, can impact the motion sensor of their Baby monitor. So, Bluebell shouldn't be relied on to accurately detect breathing rate or no breathing if there is external movement.
  • The monitor may also detect the breathing or movement from any other person sharing the bed with the baby, and will not alarm as long as it detects that movement, even if baby stops breathing. So, the baby wearing the Baby monitor should sleep in his/her own separate bed or cot.
  • Excessive external noise may show that baby's crying when they're not.
